Not since Garfield in the early 1980’s has a cat with a bad personality captured so many hearts. The internet-superstar will also get a new movie.
The cat’s actual name is ‘Tardar Sauce’ and he has just been signed by Broken Road Productions according to Deadline, to star in a feature film. “Rare is an image that evokes that much comedy,” said Todd Garner, the founder of Broken Road. The can and Sean Robins will be hitting the big screen sometime in the future. “You read all of the memes and the comments, and one is funnier than the next. We think we can build a big family comedy around this character.”
This is not to be confused by film’s other leading feline ‘Lil Bub,’ who recently starred in a film all his own named ‘Lil Bub & Friendz’. The film was very well received, it was even chosen as this year’s Best Feature Film in the Tribeca Film Festival’s online competition.
